Cynical Life Lessons

22 Jun

“The purpose of life is a life of purpose.”

*yawn*

Cheesy quotes like the former are riddled throughout my Facebook status page posted by friends of friends who truly believe that if you wish upon a star, your dreams will come true.

Stuff No One Told Me tells me that those who obsess over Disney quotables are similar to those who watch too much porn:

This is the kind of stuff we should be teaching our kids.

Call me the anti-romantic, but I would rather be smacked in the face by reality than drugged by optimism. Though SNOTM is infused with a bit of cheese, I think it’s a cute parody of the classic motivational uppers. We need some sass to respond to angsty social media users who abuse their right to be heard by whining about their boy problems. I guess I could just unfollow / unfriend them, but then who would I make fun of?

Point is, if you’re going to post TMI on a public forum, people are allowed to ridicule you. That’s why there’s sites like Failbooking.

Loves it.
